The HMRS is a society where members are encouraged to share their knowledge and ideas with other members and non members seeking help on particular areas of railway modelling, railway operations, present and past, and research. The society has various area groups who meet in a particular geographic area and invite speakers with specialist knowledge. We have a steward system for expert advice and help within a narrow range of railway interest. We have close links with academic reserch and run an education fund which supports those doing formal railway reearch and we own a Museum and Study centre which holds many of our tangible resources Details about each of these are under this menu item.
